Prof. Chao Gao receivedhis Ph. D. in 2001 on Polymer Chemistry and Physics in Shanghai Jiao TongUniversity (SJTU), M.S.C., and B.Sc. both on Chemical Engineering from Hunan University,in 1998 and 1995, respectively. Since 2001, he became a faculty member in SJTU,and associate professor in 2002. Since Nov. 2003, he worked with Prof. SirHarry Kroto as a visiting scholar and post-doc research fellow in University of Sussex, UK,and then moved to Prof. Axel H. E. Müller’s group at Bayreuth University,Germany in July 2005 as an Alexander von Humboldt research fellow. In 2008, he joined Zhejiang University, and was promoted as full professor.
His research interestsinclude hyperbranched polymers, chemistry of graphene and carbon nanotubes,controlled/living polymerization and click chemistry. He co-edited a book onhyperbranched polymers (published by John, Wiley & Sons) and published morethan 100 papers with citation of more than 4500 times and H-index 33. Hisresearch of graphene fiber knot has been selected by Nature as “Images of the Year” in 2011.

Graphenefiber (GF) is one of the most important macroscopic assembled graphene materials. Our group proposed a full-scale synergistic defect-engineering strategy to improve the performance of GF by combination of high stretching, fining, and high-temperature annealing. The GF showed a tensile strength 1.5-2 GPa and Young’s modulus 300-400 GPa. By post-doping with K, Br2, and FeCl3, the electrical conductivity of GF approached the level of metals. The GFs can be further assembled into multifunctional fabrics. The GFs and fabrics showed potential applications in fields of light-weight cables, supercapacitors, metal-ion batteries, and fast-responsive electrothermal heaters.
